GROSSE POINTE, MI / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2023 / Cybercrime is a growing concern throughout the United States, with thousands of businesses impacted each year. As the volume of threats continues to rise, private practice attorney, Micheal Cherry, explores some simple steps that businesses can take to protect their data in a new online article.
"The first step in protecting your business from cybercrime is to create a security plan. This plan should include policies and procedures for handling potential security threats, such as network intrusion attempts or suspicious emails. It should also have programs for responding if an attack occurs, such as contacting law enforcement and restoring compromised data. Additionally, ensure your employees know these policies and procedures so they know what to do when faced with a security threat."
Michael Cherry continues by stating that another way to protect your business from cybercrimes is by educating employees on best practices. He recommends taking the time to explain the risks of certain actions such as clicking on suspicious links or opening attachments from unknown sources. Cherry also recommends multi-factor authentication:
"Multi-factor authentication (MFA (News - Alert)) is an additional layer of security that requires multiple pieces of evidence before granting access to a system or website. This could include a password and a different code sent via SMS or email. MFA adds an extra layer of protection by ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data or systems."
Throughout the article, Michael Cherry also recommends using encryption technology, firewalls that act as a barrier between private networks and the outside world and to conduct regular security audits.
